      Was it correct to call a reraise on flop, and call on turn and river? By calling, i was trying to keep a pot small.

      I'm pretty sure you are beat by the turn, I would also call the flop raise for pot control, but I would probably fold the turn.

      Hi,


      It's obviously a first-in open raise with 99 from MP3, you very likely have the best hand and you'll get the pot uncontested very often, instead of getting outdrawn by crap like 28o from the BB.

      Flop play is fine, turn is the real decision. He could have anything like 74o/A7 and we have no reads on him. I'd probably fold the turn against that minbet/3bet pot pot line, it's not worth the bluff-catching without more information on the guy. Sometimes we fold the best hand, but that's a bad risk/reward spot imo without some kind of clue that he's mindlessly aggressive.


      Hope it helps.
